So is FO76 mate ;)

Pillars of Eternity: another game with awesome promise that just became a godawful boring slog. I know of very few people who managed to get through it.

PoE is the only recent CRPG that I've actually finished



:P

So tonight computer slows down and restarts and makes rAM noises again.

Shit... I turn it off. A bit later it is fine. Till it tries to boot the os and goes to repair mode.

I remember I made a system restore point after my previous bad experience.  But this now canít fucking find it.

Fml. Too late at night to deal with this

Oh jeez. Retract part of that statement. I completely forgot that I finished a bunch of Mass Effect and Dragon Age games.

Gonna throw my contrary opinion in. FO:NV to meet is the best of the modern Fallout games. I'm fact, I trust them way more than Bethseda to make a game that is going to hold my interest.

PoE is the only recent CRPG that I've actually finished since... NWN2 😁 although Pix will find my tastes questionable because I've finished way more JRPGs in that rolled period.

Don't get me wrong... I'll be playing this on day 1.

I'm just expecting to be disappointed. LOL

I've liked most of their games, though you could easily argue they're on a downward trend, especially if they drove someone like Chris Avellone away and consented to be bought by Microsoft.

KOTOR2, even in its buggy state, presents the most complex, philosophical arguments in all of Star Wars history (and it somehow predicted what Disney would do with the franchise).  I had not played it until 2015 and it holds up extremely well just for the concepts it has. 

Alpha Protocol has choices that actually matter, and that was enough to make me beat it 4+ times to see the different permutations.  I will also not accept any arguments against the fact that it has the single best dialogue system in any game ever, on top of the fact that you get rewarded for making people EITHER like you OR hate you (with different rewards and story changes). 

Fallout: New Vegas felt awkwardly linear at the start in regards to the intended path, but all of the "roadblocks" can actually be bypassed, and it ended up being by far the most fun FO to break.  Made a 1 INT 1 CHA character who became beloved by every faction simultaneously, which actually felt rewarding since the factions were all pretty interesting (besides maybe the Khans or NCR).  Melee was also super fun (and probably overpowered) compared to 3 or 4. I didn't play the DLCs, but apparently several of them are great. 

Pillars of Eternity I would agree was not as good as the reviews suggested.  Some interesting characters, but there is almost no main plot and you have basically zero motivation to do anything.

I'll certainly keep tabs on Outer Worlds.  It sounds like they're trying to keep their focus on player choice actually having effects, which is a good sign.

I have to admit that FO: New Vegas didn't take the first time that I play it.

Reinstalled it years later and I loved it.  Main quest wise it beats 3 & 4 easily IMO.  I do think that 3 had the best side missions and LV and 4 were about the same.  KOTOR was pretty great in my opinion, but I do tend to slog through long games.  It also might be that I played it way later meaning that my first attempt in it did not run into as many bugs.

Mutant Year Zero is amazing. That will be all, thank you.

I've been ogling that myself. Looks good. Bit pricey atm.
Does it actually play like XCOM as Ive heard?

It absolutely does. The HUD is even practically ripped straight out of XCOM. You will be in very familiar ground, mechanically.

The game is stupidly gorgeous. The voice-acting is great. The story is engaging so far. The mechanics are solid. Super highly recommended.
